Default The Vampire Fad- My Opinion On It

*WARNING: THIS IS A RANT.*
Okay. So. Disclaimer first. I don't mean to offend anyone. This is just my opinion. If you wanna get all riled up, that's fine. You're just expressing your opinion too.

Now that that's out of the way. I've noticed that recently, a lot of stuff about Vampires is coming up. Most of it, is junk. Absolute junk.
Vampires are monsters. Awesome monsters. How do you think they feel about all these fangirls? They probably don't like it. I mean seriously. Dracula. You would not want to kiss Dracula. You would probably run away screaming. Same with werewolves, but I'll save that for another time.
So. I could let it go. I mean, Vampires are cool. Some animes use hot guys as vampires. Just like the books. But the OVERLOAD disgusts me. Too much of one thing is sickening, almost all the time. If it were a few, okay, fine. But like, almost all the top books for teens on amazon are vampire related! RIDICULOUS I TELL YOU.
Another thing. This whole Twilight Saga thing. Wait, no, don't shoot me. Let me speak. It COULD be good. It has the potential to be good. But in reality? It's junk too. It will NEVER be a classic. It won't go down in history. Why? It's a fad. People get over it. And if it does go down in history, it will probably be for story with the most rabid fan-girls.
Wanna know the thing I hate most about Twilight? How Meyer turns a perfect villain, the bloodsucking vampire, Lord of Darkness, INTO A SPARKLING PRETTY BOY. What the heck. What the heck. NO. That does not go over well. Boys should not sparkle. PERIOD. It's messed up. I don't think it's romantic in the slightest.

In short, Vampires should probably stick to being villains most of the time. They should not sparkle. And the writers who keep spouting garbage should stow it.
That will be all for now.

I totally agree with you. I wrote a vampire/werewolf book called Halfblood and it would make the fangirls scream or barf because it's so bloody and true monster-ish.
VAMPIRES SHOULD KILL THE PEOPLE, NOT KISS 'EM!
Hellsing is an awesome vampire anime. The main character's name is actually Dracula backwards. It's so cool and un-romantic.

Completely and utterly agree with you. I'd add on to your rant, but I can't at the moment.

Yeah I've heard of Hellsing. It's on my list of animes to watch.
And I wanna read your book. Any real monster would be preferable to a sparkling stalker. Too much gore is not cool. Another thing media has turned into a fad, but some gore adds a certain flair.

It doesn't have ike too much. Just to the fighting parts or when they attack a human or something.

I agree woth you a little..a lot of movies and tv shows nowadays are about 'good' vampires and in my opinion vampires are supposed to be demons snd tv shows and movied make it look like they are this amazing piece of art

Basically, vampires in general are.....well.......okay. A little weird, but pretty good, and in capable hands, could easily be the scariest, coolest monster ever (besides werewolves). But meyers (her name is worth neither saying the entire thing or capitalizing) ruined it for all authors. Now, when people see a vampire book, they think: "OOOOOOOOH! SPARKLY VAMPIRES!"
